Are you sure your G400 is the 3.3V version? If it's AGP 4X, it should be
compatible with your new motherboard. One sure way to tell is to look at the
part number on the card. If there's a "4A" in the number, it's 4X.

You can put ANY G400 into a 4x motherboard - you won't blow a 4x motherboard
with a G400.

It may or may not work depending on what revision of the G400 you have. But
even if it doesn't work, it won't blow the board.

There's a mod (using a lead pencil to join two contacts on the card) to make
the old G400's run. I haven't tried it myself.

It will be if the new board also supports 4x.
